Justice Harlan concluded his dissent in Plessy v. Ferguson, (1896), with the following line:

"For the reason stated, I am constrained to withhold my assent from the opinion and judgment of the majority."

He meant that he could not agree with majority opinionor vote on the case (his was the lone dissent) for the reasons stated in his dissenting opinion.
